Richard Tennant Cooper was a British artist known for his eerie fantasy paintings and for his works depicting the First World War. A version of this particular painting is on display at the Royal Signals Museum in Blandford Forum, and his works are also at the National Army Museum.



Between October 1914 and September 1918 hundreds of thousands of servicemen of the British Empire marched through the town of Ypres's Menin Gate on their way to the battlefields. The Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial, which now stands there, bears the names of more than 54,000 soldiers who died before 16 August 1917 and have no known grave.
